Lutz Spruce Soundboard for Small Guitar

About This Item

Visually a very clean and light tonewood with powerful projection. Strong strummers and hard pickers will appreciate the warmth and dynamic response of Lutz.

Lutz Spruce is a naturally occurring hybrid, growing among the Sitka and White Spruce in Western North America. It picks up a bit of each wood's character: high stiffness, low density, and consistent white color.

Bookmatched sets of two quartersawn halves. When joined they're large enough for classical, 000, and parlor size guitars.

  • Each half is approximately 8" x 22" (203mm x 559mm)
  • Thickness-sanded to 0.125" - 0.130" (3.18mm - 3.30mm)
  • Unsanded tops are approx. 5/32" (4mm) thick, ready for thickness-sanding to your own specs.



Use our grading system to choose your soundboard...

Color: Higher grade soundboards have more consistent color (color affects the instrument's appearance only, not its tone).

Grain straightness: Higher soundboard grades have straighter, tighter, and more uniform grain. While closely spaced grain has been traditionally favored, luthiers have found that wider grain can produce very good tone.

Quartersawn grain: The higher the grade, the more closely quartersawn the wood. Perfectly quartered wood is more dimensionally stable and moves proportionally with changing temperature and humidity environments. This helps to ensure structural integrity and resists cracking better than other types of cuts.

Grain run-out: Our soundboards are sawn from split billets to reduce the amount of grain "run-out," caused by a twist in the tree. By splitting the log, the twist is followed when sawing. Higher grade soundboards have less run-out.

Origin and drying: Our soundboards (unless otherwise noted) are from western North America, and have been kiln-dried and stored in a climate controlled environment.

Exceptional service

By

Verified Buyer


I ordered 4 sets of AA grade Small Guitar Lutz spruce and 3 of the sets had tight, straight grain (max 2.5mm) with very little run out and near vertical end grain. The 4th set though had a sizable broken corner on both bookends with the grain becoming wider than 3.5mm and wavy half way along each board. StewMac resolved this quickly with no fuss and have shipped a replacement set at their expense within 2 days of exchanging emails and photos. Well done team!

Fantastic wood!

I bought one of these soundboards about a year ago and finally used it on my most recent build. Excellent quality wood aesthetically and tonally speaking. I was surprised at how good the instrument sounded. A very rich, clean, balanced sound. Will definetly use this wood again!

AA Grade is a Bargain

By

Verified Buyer


The wood i received has the expected color and grain variations for AA grade (which i find attractive.) it is as laterally stiff as some Adi and bearclaw Sitka i have on hand. The glued up top has a nice resonant tap tone. Will update this review after my OO guitar is finished. This is my first time using Lutz, but based on experience so far, I'll probably buy more.

The two sets arrived as described -- whitish and clean. I haven't used them. With granadillo and narra, I'm hoping for a full sound.
